john boehner says he has gotten the message. >> because the american people expect us to find common ground, we're willing to accept some additional revenues via tax reform. there's a model for tax reform that supports economic growth. >> reporter: does that mean house republicans are now willing to accept higher taxes on those making more than $250,000? not exactly. boehner says he will only raise more money from taxes under what he called the right conditions. >> does the increased revenue come from government taking a larger share of what the american people earn through higher tax rates? or does it come as a bi-product of growing our economy, energized by a simpler cleaner fairer tax code with fewer loopholes and lower rates for all. >> reporter: democratic senate leader harry reid also says he wants a quick fix for the fiscal cliff. but, he was clearly feeling empowered by a strong showing in the election. >> i want to work together, but i want everyone to understand you can't push us around. >> reporter: and raising taxes on the well-off is clearly a top priority. >> all the ex
speaker john boehner responded this afternoon. >> and for this to work, we need to plan for a serious process. focus on substance, not on the attic at it will require week of work rather than a weekend of photo op. it won't happen around a campfire at camp david or as much i'd like over 18 holes of golf. i think this is going to take time, but if we're all striving for a solution, i'm confident we can get one. >> chris van hollen, a member of the supercommittee on deficit reduction. he knows a lot. good to see you in person. >> it's great to be here. >> we're all running on fumes and now, we have to get on those fumes and solve this problem because the market is right. it is a crisis and it has to be dealt with. what i don't understand is, a little change in the senate, but -- why is it going to happen now. >> first of all, a lot of the republicans in congress have been focused primarily, maybe we can move beyond that objective. the second is the structure of the situation. the cliff creates big risks, also, opportunities. because not resolving the fiscal cliff will create problems fo
and the president. speaker boehner said tax hik eshehikes aren't acceptable. senator mcconnell the republican leader in senate said that he won't raise taxes to turn off those spending cuts. if senator mcconnell and speaker boehner don't bend, do you still believe the president should go up to the brink. >> here we are, our country has a tremendous debt and deficit problem. we also have a challenge in making sure that we educate our work force, we need to make sure we care for our veterans who need that care today. we need to have research and we need to be able to compete in a global marketplace, those investments are important. everyone who has looked at this, including the supercommittee that i served on, said we need to have revenue as part of the solution to this problem as well as looking at entitlements and spending cuts. what the missing ingredient is revenue. that's what we face right now. if our republican counterparts can step forward with that revenue piece we'll be able to find a solution. >> and if not, go off a cliff? >> well, clearly, we have the ability between now and the end of th
by house speaker john boehner-- suggested a deal was possible, and invited the president to make a proposal. said boehner, "this is your moment. we want you to lead." >> we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. what matters is where the increased revenue comes from and what type of reform comes with it. does the increased revenue come from what the government taking a larger share of what the american people earn through higher tax rates? or does it come from a byproduct of growing our economy energized by a simpler cleaner fairer tax code with fewer loopholes and lower rates for all. >> reporter: it all signaled a quick return to earth, after the jubilation of election night that swept up even chicago mayor rahm emanuel, during a live interview with the "newshour's" ray suarez. the president built his victory over mitt romney on a series of wins in battleground states, giving him 303 electoral votes-- 33 more than needed. he also was running ahead in florida, for another 29 electoral votes, but the state had not yet been called after long lines on tuesday held up the
stepped all of them. so now we know and we lettered it first hand yesterday. boehner said we're open to tax increase, but part of a bigger plan that involves spending cuts. dove did a bungee -- >> worst thing i ever did. >> but it goes down and then right back up. >> the worst part is you feel like you're connected on something, but don't. it's a free fall until the very he said and then he start to feel like i'm connected to something and it throws being back into the air. >> my question is let's say that it's not a bungee, let's say it's a rope. so you jump and then you -- that would be like hanging yourself. but you do possibly survive. but then you're all the way down there and then you don't know when someone's going to pull you back up. i think it might be more like that. if we go down, we may be d dangling for a while. >> once we go over the cliff, it's much more complicated. and you get rope burns, too. >> you can it. well, that's if it's not stretchy and it's just a rope,s's more than a burn. then you actually -- they pull you back up, but you're dead. and that could happen,
quo. asking the two to work together as house speaker john boehner put it the day after the election. >> the american people have spoken. they reelected president obama. they have again reelected a republican majority in the house of representatives. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. >> the other way to interpret the results is to see them as a resounding liberal governance. a larger and apparently more democratic majority in the senate. it's how harry reid framed the results. >> we had an overwhelming re-election of the president. we picked up seats in the senate and the house. it's not the status quo. >> one thing is clear. it will not look like any congress we have ever had. the most stunning exacten is the diminishing number of white men in house of representatives. in the current house, white men were 88% compared to 53% in the caucus. for the first time ever in history, white men will make up just a minority, 46% of the democratic caucus. women will make u
with john boehner, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. is he planning on sitting down with those two republican leaders any time soon? is the white house saying? >> reporter: there's nothing announced for a leaders meeting so far. but i am certain, wolf, that that will be coming because there's such important negotiations ahead. i'm told that the president's conversation with speaker boehner was courteous, it was brief. and i'm told that they also discussed the importance of keeping their public statements vague or general enough so that they leave themselves enough private negotiating room to get a deal done to avoid the fiscal cliff, wolf. >> that's probably smart too. thanks very much for that, jessica. let's dig a little bit deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. isn't his responsibility right now though to take the first step, offer a proposal to boehner, to mcconnell, to the republicans? we assume that the democrats, nancy pelosi would go along and harry reid would go along with the president. >> well, i think as jessica's saying, the president bel
not include a tax increase for the wealthiest americans, suzanne. >> jessica, we heard boehner, john boehner, actually within the last 30 minutes or so talking about that there are ways to raise revenue and spending cuts as well in a all options are on the table. do you think the white house sees that as some sort of opening, if you will, to negotiations? >> i think both sides are hopeful there is wiggle room for negotiations. everyby knowthat sething s to gone becauseh economy will take such a serious hit if it doesn't. here is where i see the battle line right now. republicans on capitol hill tell me they are willing to raise revenue. that's a big change. they are willing to raise revenue, but without a change in the tax rates. the president has said that the highest earning americans have to pay more. congressional republicans saying no change to the tax rates. that's a big difference of opinion. they'll have to find a way to bridge that divide. beyond that, they're willing to compromise on entitlements. they're willing to find cuts, so there does seem to be room for compromise. there's a
steinhouser is following all the developments. >> you were just showing pictures of house speaker john boehner, the top republican in congress, and harry reid, the senate majority leader, he's the top democrat in congress. they came before our cameras yesterday in washington, john. they did talk about the election being a voice from the american voters for a call for compromise. and you heard both men talking about working together to fix the country's problems along with the president. but at the same time, you also heard both men laying down markers and both men disagreeing on whether whether it comes to the fiscal cliff the wealthy should be taxed. take a look at what they said. >> it won't solve the problem of our fiscal imbalance overnight. certainly won't do it in a lame duck session of congress. and it won't be solved simply by raising taxes or taking a plunge off the fiscal cliff. >> the vast majority of the american people rich, poor, everybody agrees that the rich, richest of the rich have to help a little bit. >> another disagreement, john boehner the house speaker talking about doi
. >> reporter: from speaker of the house john boehner, to the newly re-elected president, an olive branch. >> mr. president, the republican majority here in the house stands ready to work with you. >> reporter: they better work together. if they don't strike a deal to cut the deficit in just 55 days, by law, we face the so-called fiscal cliff, taxmaggedon, a mix of tax increases and defense spending cuts that would likely plunge the economy back into recession. and give a big tax hike for virtually every family in america starting january 1st. the president has insisted and campaigned on raising tax rates on the wealthy. house republicans campaigned on no tax increases and they won, too. today, from boehner, a hint at a willingness to compromise. >> we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's rise above the dysfunction and do the right thing together for our country. >> reporter: the newly elected congress looks almost exactly like the last one. the same partisan divisions, maybe even a little bit deeper, that led to failure last time. bu
the ever looming fiscal cliff. u.s. house speaker john boehner said he'd pursue a deal with president obama that would include higher taxes under quote/unquote the right conditions to help reduce the country's looming fiscal cliff. and just when new york city thought it was all over, a nor'easter has smacked the tri-state area overnight. dumping inches of snow over some of hurricane sandy's hardest hit areas. wind and heavy snow have brought down power lines and electrical wires and thousands who lost power because of the last storm just lost it all over again. the storm brought the city to a virtual stand still last night. clean up crews have been working, though, to remove snow and clear the streets. we'll keep you posted on how that is doing as we look forward to the u.s. market opening today. coming up next, though, china's new leader will soon be revealed as the communist party's 18th national congress gets under way, but what does the transition mean for relations with europe? >>> hu jintao calls on china's next leaders to stamp out corruption and nir row the income gap as the communi
working across the aisle. yesterday john boehner said he would work. and harry reid mentioned he likes to dance but can fight. >> the american people have spoke yen they reelected president obama and again a republican majority in the house of representatives and there is a man date in yesterday's results it is a man date for us to work together on the solutions and challenges that we face as a nation. >> the american people us to work together . i know how to fight and i know how to dance. i don't dance as well as i fight but i would rather dance any time. the way to get things done to work at this time. we need republicans to help us. i repeat to have the leader of the republicans in the senate say his number one goal to defeat obama and that's how we legislated. >> steve: that was two days ago. come on and smell the poll results. say we hold a majority in the house of representative and so we have a man date as well >> gretchen: this is what the american people are so tired of. listening to the back and forth and back and forth and nothing gets done. nothing gets done. if you want m
the pipeline. mapped door budget cuts kick in in 54 days. house speaker john boehner says it is time for the president to lead. here he is is talking about that. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be lead, not as democrats or republicans but americans. we want you to lead, not as a liberal or conservative but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. bill: stuart varney, anchor of "varney & company", fox business network. the issues on the table are the same issues as monday. we want you to succeed by the way. what did you hear or what are you hearing based on the statements out of the washington now? >> three statements to listen to very carefully. speaker boehner, senate majority leader harry reid, and the big union boss, richard trumka. if you add them all together, tell you exactly what they said in a moment, add them all together the outlines of a deal would look like this. this is on the fiscal cliff. the outlines would possibly look like this. raise taxes, certainly raise tax revenues right now, beginning next year. promise to cut

age to 67 and cap benefit hikes under social security. obama and house speaker john boehner are due to begin negotiations friday on averting the so-called fiscal cliff of expiring tax cuts and automatic spending reductions set to take effect at the end of the year. speaking in washington, treasury secretary timothy geithner stressed the urgency of reaching a deal. >> i know the cliff is unattractive. it would cause a lot of damage to the american economy. a careful about those who argue and urge for "let's just extend while we negotiate." it will leave a different source of uncertainty on the table, like what would give the people the incentive to come back and do something tough. >> millions of workers in europe have joined a general strike today protesting the wave of spending cuts and tax hikes that has swept the continent in the name of austerity. spanish and portuguese workers are coordinating their strike with work stoppages also planned in greece, italy, france and belgium. we will have more on the strike after headlines. closing arguments have ended in a pretrial hearing to

of a change. john boehner will be the speaker of the house, you know, unless something unforeseen happens in the next few weeks. he will be, he will keep the reign. the republicans gained, you know, a few seats, but that's not really going to effect his shot. he ran unopposed in ohio for his own race, and the defining conflict of the republican conference in the 112th congress, this sort of conflict between eric cantor, the majority leader, and john boehner, the speaker, is really behind them at least, you know, from everything that we have seen. the -- so that is remarkably stable, the first three positions. john boehner will be, you know, the next speaker, eric cantor will be the majority leader, and kevin mccarthy will be the majority whip. where it starts to get interesting is for the conference chairman position. this is currently held by jeb hensarling who is making a bid to be the financial services chairman. hensarling has been a sort of rising star for a while within republican ranks. he was a republican study committee chairman which is sort of the top conservative position in r
but democrats as well, the president reaching out to speaker boehner by phone and mitch mcconnell in the senate and to democratic leadership. the president telling them that he is committed to finding a bipartisan solution to some of the tough problems, such as cutting taxes for middle class americans, creating jobs. what's unclear at this point is what else will the president do beyond making phone calls? will he be invoighting the leadership here to the wit house? will they be having retreats elsewhere? what is cloer is already up on capitol hill the loweredship is talking about getting things done. >> by working together and creating a fairer, simpler, cleaner tax code we can give our country a stronger, healthier economy. a stronger economy means more revenue, which is what the president seeks. >> this isn't something that i'm going to draw the lines any lines in the sand. he isn't going to draw any lines in the sand, i don't believe. we need to work together. >> the president said he believes the message that the americans sent in the election is that they want members of congress, both pa
boehner, basically had a deal in place, it ended up getting blown up at the last minute. i think there is a, perhaps, a new conciliation on both sides. i think they were waiting for the election to get over. i think the attitudes are positive on both sides. and i think they've got the framework for a deal already set up from last year. so i don't think that there are any closer but i also don't think they were that far away last year in 2011. >> do you think that closing the loopholes would be enough for a deficit reduction package? >> it doesn't appear that that's going to raise enough revenue to get to where the democrats want that to be. republicans say they don't want to raise rates. there are some -- there's some budget chicanery that can go on in terms of dealing with one baseline instead of another baseline. that's what it looked like boehner wanted to do last year. there are a lot of different options here. it's interesting, bill kristol from the weekly standard appeared to be talking to grover norquist, the anti-tax activist in those comments that he played earlier, talk
. it's good for america to see this. john boehner coming out today. harry reid as well. boehner said, we can't keep setting the bar that low. it is time we raise the bar. i loved what he said about we are ready to be led not as democrats or republicans, but as americans, not as a liberal or conservative, but as the president of the united states. >> that's the quote mark alluded to. you hope in light -- dual messages last night. the country overwhelmingly elected barack obama back to office. more democrats in the senate and the house. on the other side. popular vote very close. obama, up by 3 million votes. very close race. that was a message, not a mandate. so there is a middle ground that you hope they both seek out. because the electorate did send dual messages last night. >> one headline, the divided states of america. it is a little divided. we need some healing, neosporin and a band-aid. >>> yeah. asian stocks tumbled overnight after a steep drop on wall street. global investors are nervous about new forecasts that show slow slow economic growth in europe well into next year. b
'll play their hand i think to their full advantage. >> what kind of hand does john boehner have? where sg it leave him and his ability to control the tea party wing? >> it actually puts skron boehner in a good position because during the debt ceiling talks last year, he had a lot of push back from the very far right of his party in the house. the tea party caucus, for example. this time around we won't see the same dynamic at all because the tea party caucus and far right have lost a lot of political capital in light of the election. so what we've already seen is speaker boehner talking to republicans in the house, putting his foot down early and saying we're not going to have that same push back we saw. instead, i'm going to tell you what we're going to do and what this deal is going to look like and you'll fall into line. >> he got criticism because he negotiated a deal and then went back and tried to sell to the party. does he naed to do he need to d way around, get a set position and then go into discussions? >> i think that is the thinking this time around. and he has certainly recog
into hands because we are sick of it. and, you know, what i would like to tell john boehner is don't give in to this craziness. this is nothing but craziness. and i watched harry reid yesterday. you know, he talked and he talked and he really said nothing. then he went on about dance, dance, dance and i thought to myself all you do is dance around with these bills that they send. the house will have a bill, they send it to the senate and what does he do? dances around it and never addresses it. >> host: know by partisanship than for you? >> caller: no, absolutely none. then when he left the stage and was walking off, the man -- i feel bad for him that he just can't get it together -- he grabbed ahold of the flag. he was falling. then he grabbed ahold of low wall and at that point i said uh oh that man needs to go home. he's too old to be there. he doesn't do his job and is collecting a big paycheck. >> host: we covered that news conference. you probably watched it on c-span, go over to the site, c-span.org if you want to watch the entire press conference with senate majority leader harry
with the republican speaker john boehner signaling he may be ready for a deal. so conservatives are warning while the president does not have to face the voters again, congressional democrats will in two years. tax hikes could come back to haunt them. >> i think he is going to require increase in tax rate on wealthy. that is his downfall. that is just makes no sense whatsoever. the wealthy are the people who hire everyone else. you can't love jobs and hate job creators. >> white house officials note the president campaigned on raising taxes and he won so he thinks he can sell it to the congressional democrats. meanwhile, the white house officials tonight say he will make the first post-election statement at the white house. tomorrow afternoon, talk about the economy, fiscal cliff. it doesn't look like he will take questions, not a full scale. post election news conference, though. it may be coming soon. >> bret: we'll cover it live on fox. thanks. what is the most pressing issue right now for president? let me know on twitter. follow me. @bretbaier. we kept you well fed with steady diet of polls
boehner pledged to negotiate in good faith. >> the american people want us to work together. republicans and democrats want us to work together. they want a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have dealing with this huge deficit and taxes that are part of that. >> there is an alternative to going over the fiscal cliff. it involves making real changes to the financial structure of entitlement programs and reforming our tax code to curb special interest loopholes and deductions. by working together and creating a simpler, cleaner tax code, we give our country a stronger, healthier economy. >> powerful winter storm again has blasted the northeast, bringing wet snow and strong winds to areas already devastated by last week's superstorm sandy. tens of thousands of homes and businesses lost power along the east coast from the carolinas to new york on wednesday, joining the more than half a million customers who still remain without power in sandy's wake. concerns were raised the storm could relief -- threatening relief effort in some of the hardest-hit polls. meanw
and the fiscal cliff here. today "the washington post" trying to read the tea leaves. what was boehner saying? does the white house have a mandate? are the next six weeks, eight weeks going to be about watching political posturing, trying to trade off of that? >> unfortunately. grover norquist in my class in college and he was an outlier then and he's not now. everyone's shifted so far to the right in politics. even the left, you can argue the democrats shifted because they can't spend like they used to. if he is in charge of the party, i think there's a fiscal cliff avoid answer. i don't know if he is. >> were you encouraged by what was said yesterday? hard to tell. early days. >> everybody's been encouraged is fooled. fool me once. i think that the proof will be real change within the hard right tea party of the republican party. because, i mean, look. i think that obama, whether you like him or not, obama said you raise revenue. have a talk. boehner did mention raising revenues but does he have people in the tea party wing this agrees with him? i don't know. what do you think? >> i don't k
